About Emily Merrell: Emily, also lovingly referred to as “20 questions” has always loved figuring out people’s stories. Born in Florida she spent her formative years in Connecticut before heading (mid)west for college. At Denison University in Ohio she studied Spanish and Communications and upon graduating into a recession, she moved to Buenos Aires to continue mastering her Spanish. It was in BA that she was introduced to entrepreneurship and Malbec (beginning her love of bold red wine). After 9 months of wearing multiple hats in BA she returned to the BIG APPLE and landed herself in the High Luxury Fashion world specializing in Events & Marketing. While in Fashion she craved more connection and in 2014 she carved out her own little community and founded a women’s focused networking organization called Six Degrees Society. At each event they handpick who you meet while networking and curate personalized connections plus offer programming that is personal, professional and lifestyle focused. After 2 years as a side hustle Emily turned her side hustle into a full-time hustle and expanded the reach to 10 IRL chapters across the country along with hosting 100+ virtual events. Six Degrees Society has been called one of “The Best NYC Networking Events If You Want To Find A New Job” by Refinery29 and “Where To Meet Women Who Are As Obsessed With Their Career As You” by Girl Boss. They have partnered with brands such as Ann Taylor, Rebecca Taylor, Rebecca Minkoff, Kendra Scott, Vince, Theory, Velvet and many more.In addition to running Six Degrees Society, Emily is a business coach and consultant to female solopreneurs and helps individuals scale their business through events, community and partnerships. After 7 years in NYC she made the move to SF and is working on mayor status, one connection at a time. In her free time, you can find her exploring new restaurants, drinking bold bottles of wine, taking early morning workout classes, planning her next trip or playing the name game. She is the proud wife to Greg and mama to her fur baby Daisy. Follow her adventures at @emilyamerrell and @six_degrees_society.
